May 28th 2007 marks the 25th anniversary of Pope John Paul II’s visit to Britain. Do you have any memories of this historic event, or reflections on his life?
John Paul II had compassion and humility in his eyes. He visited the man who shot him in prison and to the world sent a very powerful message of forgiveness. In my past experiences I have found it hard to forgive but when I think of Pope John Paul II I can forgive anyone. He was lovely and Pope Benedict is simply carrying on from where Pope John Paul II left off.

May our Mother of Perpetual Help accompany our Pope and all the children of God during this visit and forever.
Lots of love and prayers

The most important thing for the Polish or any newcomer visiting the English speaking Catholic Church is to know some of it's history. Especially the lives of our Martyrs. We must Talk to them! Tell them!

I believe that the Church can do a lot to tackle climate change.
In the first place she must educate all it's members to cut down on wastage and unneccessary travel.
To start with, each church institution must apply an environmental audit in order to pin-point exactly how resources are being used at present, and how they can be economised in future.
Once the audit is complete, the recomendations by the experts must be followed.

It's too easy to close your eyes to the needs of new arrivals to a parish. A starting point is to be welcoming to all people, and to build friendships based on the message of Christ to welcome the stranger.
